Even the strongest relationships can sometimes use a little help. Whether you and your partner need guidance to get through a rough patch or to navigate a crossroads in your life together, couples therapy is a proactive way for you and your partner to strengthen your relationship.
What Is Couples Therapy?
Couples counseling (interchangeably referred to as couples psychotherapy or couples therapy) is designed to support couples who have been struggling to resolve an issue (or multiple issues) on their own.
One goal of couples therapy is to provide you and your partner with a safe, supportive environment in which to express your honest feelings, find deeper levels of understanding and achieve greater intimacy. Couples therapy encourages you to discuss your issues in a constructive, non-threatening manner—and helps you learn how to avoid common communication mistakes.
Once healthy dialogue is established, we can help you and your partner resolve hurt feelings and address the issues that are impacting your relationship. We also provide you with the tools you need to resolve issues on your own outside of the therapy environment.
Who Can Benefit From Couples Counseling?
Love comes in a variety of forms. We offer counseling for all couples interested in improving their relationships, regardless of race, ethnicity or socio-economic background.
